You do know that you're replying publically to an off-list message,
right? I only know what "hack" you're talking about by inference,
because I'm aware of the MySQL++ history.

The consequence of any of these "hack"s is that the API for using
SSQLSes must change, and possibly the ABI as well. That's why we
haven't implemented any change yet. We're trying to be good little boys
and not break the ABI within the 2.x series. Recompiling your released
binaries every third release of MySQL++ sucks.
